Officers are appealing for information after a mobility scooter was stolen in Gosport.

It is described as a Shoprider Sovereign mobility scooter and is maroon in colour.
PC Neil Nancarrow, said: “The owner of this scooter, a 72-year-old man, relies on it and would use it everyday. It was his main form of transport and it enabled him to get out and about.
“This type of scooter is quite common and is often seen out and about. If you think you might know who may have stolen it, or have been offered it for sale, please contact us as soon as possible.
“I would urge anyone with a scooter to do something to help identify it as your own. Place stickers and markings that will be unique to it belonging to you. Thieves want something they can easily move on, marking it to be unique to you will hopefully thwart theives and also help in identifying your property should it be found.
“We would urge anyone with information to contact us, and help us reunite the owner with his beloved scooter.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting 44210242474.
